Stimulus Bill Passes House

New Stimulus Bill Passes House

The other day we covered the news of the brand new $3T stimulus bill introduced by the Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives. The HEROES act has now passed the House, however the stimulus, which gives up to $6K for families, is not likely to pass the Senate in its current form.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made his opposition to the new HEROES Act very clear. In various tweets he has disparaged the legislation describing it at one point as a, “…parade of absurdities” and “unsalvageable” while also describing it as, “dead on arrival”.

While the $3T bill does provide new stimulus relief to Americans, at 1,800 pages long it is designed to address the many problems brought on by the Coronavirus epidemic. Unsurprisingly Senate Republicans and House Democrats disagree on exactly what problems we face and how the Stimulus money can solve them.

Is A New Stimulus Likely?

While the HEROES act is almost guaranteed not to pass the Senate in its current form, Mitch McConnell along will Senators on both sides of the aisle have stated their intentions to pass some sort of additional relief bill. In an interview with Fox News McConnell said Senate Republicans and President Trump’s administration will be on the same page when it comes time to pass a new bill.

McConnell also said his priority is to pass liability protections for businesses “brave enough to begin to open up to economy again.” Senate Republicans want narrowly crafted protections directly related to the Coronavirus. They also don’t seem to be in a huge rush as they want to see how the previous stimulus bills work through the economy.

Will the New Stimulus Include Checks for Americans?

While the Democrats have now passed their vision of the next Stimulus with the HEROES Act and Republicans have stated their intentions to pass a new stimulus bill when they feel one is necessary, the big question is what will be in it.

A good place to start is those liability protections. McConnell said that is the most important issue for him. Both sides have also made it clear they want additional relief for Americans, however what that will look like in the end may vary wildly from the up to $6K per family in additional stimulus funds provided within the HEROES Act. McConnell has said the new bill, “is not going to be a $3T left wing wish list”.

What Is Really Going On With the New Stimulus?

Both sides are posturing to get their issues included within what is still likely to be a massive upcoming stimulus. The next stimulus bill may be the last for awhile, so both sides are pressing in on issues they feel are the most important in order to get our economy going again.

We’ll see some of what is in the HEROES Act pass, however any new bill will require a lot of negotiation which is going to take time. I wouldn’t expect to see a new stimulus bill passed for some time as Republicans need to draft their own version and release it when they feel the time is right.

Stimulus Bill Passes House – Bottom Line

While the U.S. House of Represenatives has now passed the 1,800 page HEROES Act including up to $6K in stimulus funds for families along with many other programs, it will not pass the Senate in its current form. Republicans will draft their own competing legislation in the Senate and then the negotiations will begin. Let’s hope they work quickly to get aid to the people who need it.

  1. Page 961 of the house Bill, section 4024. It prohibits a landlord from making any move against a renter for non-payment, they call it a moratorium. No eviction, no attack on credit score, no legal action, no other fees or other charges, etc. for 12 months from the time of the passing of the bill. So a renter can stop paying rent for 12 months, and not be evicted and the bill does not speak to restitution. Then after 12 months of no rental income the lessor has 30 days to evict, but cannot use non-payment as a reason to evict.

  2. Cannabis is mentioned more times than jobs, letting more criminals out out prison early, more immigrant work visas ( currently 30 million american workers out of jobs), and a trillion dollars to bailout foolish states that have mismanaged their finances and promised a we will take care of you attitude for years. and every single cent of the 3 trillion will be Borrowed and gladly financed once again by China. Insanity to the tenth Degree.

  3. Is the picture of the crowd before all this happened?

    As to further stimulus, any idea what liability protections are that require money rather than simple legislation (if there is such a thing)? That sounds like making it so that companies can do stupid things and not be held responsible for their actions, and if so I would be a beneficiary even though I’m against such policies. When my business reopens I’m likely to be running about 25% of previous amounts of business due to health and safety constraints. A quarter of normal business levels won’t even come close to paying the bills. Better times ahead hopefully.

  4. At least a trillion of the first stimulus bill went to banks and large businesses that didn’t need it. Just like the fortunate few didn’t need $1200.

    Take that back. Give each citizen a thousand a month. If YOU don’t need it then give it back. The rest of that measly trillion can go to help the shortfalls the states are dealing with d/t the federal government reneging on its duty to cover disaster relief.

  5. It was a foregone conclusion that this bill would go nowhere. It is just a political ploy so Biden can say Republican’s don’t want to help heroes on the campaign trail.

  6. This is your blog, so you can post anything you want. This seems to be unrelated to travel and points and miles.
